Whether you're a freelancer, student, stay at home mom, career woman or someone who runs their own business, there is no doubting the fact that you work hard - all day - everyday. So, what does every hard-working woman (or man) need on a daily basis? 
 
A "Me.Moment".

As someone who runs their own online business while suffering from anxiety, I can tell you first hand that making a conscious effort to having a "me moment" throughout the day has made a huge difference, not only in my demeanor, but in the way I choose to handle any situation that arises.

For years, my "me moment" consisted of taking a walk or lying down for a nap. These did help me out, but as time moved forward, I have found new ways to supercharge my "me time".

The following are my top three ways I like to supercharge my daily "Me Moments":

1. GRAB A BOOK  




As a child, I would go to the library only to come home with both arms filled with books to read. I can recall staying up until the early hours of the morning reading...and reading. 


But, as I transitioned into adulthood working in the corporate world, reading for pleasure became practically non-existent. This was the case for years - up until now. 


I have made it a personal goal to read for at least 30-45 min every day. Some days it's a struggle, not because I don't have the time, but because I don't want to put the book down!










2. BE ARTISTIC



Every year around school time, I tend to purchase extra boxes of colored pencils, crayons, and markers. My excuse is always the same, "these are the backups..you know..just in case". Not true! The extras are for me. I keep them hidden in our "studio" {aka storage room} along with my favorite coloring books.

On those days when I feel myself over thinking, over analyzing or just in a mental frenzy, I immediately stop what I'm doing, walk downstairs to the studio sit down at the table and color. There's something extremely calming about stroking a colored pencil or crayon onto white paper. Within half an hour or so, my mind has completely slowed down allowing me to regain my focus.








3. SWEET TREAT


One of my favorite sweet treats to indulge in is yogurt. Yogurt is EVERYTHING. There are so many flavors and varieties to choose from, I never get tired of eating it! 




Recently, on a quick shopping trip to Walmart I went to the dairy section looking to purchase some yogurt, I came across the Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. 

I picked up three: Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean. 

*If you are interested in seeing a demo for Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt , a few select Walmart Supercenters will have one during Feb.5 - 8th.














All three flavors are quite delicious - they taste similar to ice cream but without the guilt.

The thing I appreciate the most is that the yogurt itself is easy to travel with. I've been known to walk around the office/house eating my yogurt for a mid-morning snack or take one with me when working outside of the office.

Sometimes, you can find me sitting on the back deck with my feet up on the bench with a cup of Raspberry Chocolate Chip
Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt  indulging ..... and loving every second of it.








 

I truly hope that after reading the three simple ways to supercharge your "me moment", you feel inspired to take a little more time off for yourself. I realize at first it can be hard to do however, just like everyone else, you are a person with needs - one of them is dedicating some "me time" to yourself to de-stress, gather your thoughts and just relax.

YOU.DESERVE.IT.
